Is Vista Ready?

Microsoft has now "shipped" Vista Beta 2. When I say "shipped" - I no longer quite know how to describe this on line deliver model. It's not quite released to the web. Or is it? Whatever, it's out and folks are running it.

The real question is whether the beta is indicative of a product on the shipping glideslope set for launch as previously advertised. With MS suggesting at WinHEC that things might be delayed a bit (more), the question os when will Vista ship? I am planning on self hosting at least one of my main workstations on Vista Beta 2. But to be honest, and based on beta tester feedback - I am not certain this will be a good idea. We'll see!!!
